Lise Geduldig and Kathleen Werner were recently appointed to Young Survival Coalition (YSC) Board of Directors. Both are new appointments. Established in 1998, Young Survival Coalition (YSC) focuses exclusively on the unique needs of young women impacted by breast cancer. Founded by young survivors for young survivors, YSC began as a grassroots organization to advocate on behalf of all young women diagnosed with breast cancer to increase their quality and quantity of life.
"As a friend to many women in the breast cancer community, Lise brings to YSC invaluable healthcare communications experience, as well as a passion and commitment to improving and extending the lives of young women diagnosed with breast cancer," said Lisa J. Frank, Board President, YSC Founding Member, three-time breast cancer survivor and Co-founder of YSC Tour de Pink. "A well-respected figure in the breast cancer community, Kat’s advocacy background is an asset to both YSC and the young women we serve. Lise’s communications expertise will enable us to spread the word that YSC is here for all young women affected by breast cancer, while Kat’s accomplishments will help us achieve our mission of generating public support for a community that people are often not aware exists: young women diagnosed with breast cancer."
Based in New York City, with 23 affiliates nationwide, YSC today provides comprehensive resources, support and education to address every phase of a young woman’s breast cancer experience. YSC is well known for its four national Tour de Pink® rides for breast cancer; regional In Living Pink events; ResourceLink program; as well as educational materials such as its Newly Diagnosed Resource Kit (NDRK), Metastatic Navigator and its Factor Series on topics such as fertility, genetics and breast reconstruction. It also co-presents the C4YW — Annual Conference for Young Women Affected by Breast Cancer.
